The boys warmed up before their Heartland Championship match against the King Country Rams.
Tried and tested over many years the 'score sheet' works extremely well.
For teams or individuals.
Get a bucket of balls and take turns hitting or hit by yourself.
You score by getting the ball off the tee. 10 points for 10 metres. 100 points for hitting the pontoon.
Add up your score and be the winner!
I received an email form Anna-Marie earlier in the week. We want a 6.30pm tee time on Friday.
It's going to be cold I thought. It's mid winter in Taupo and likely to be minus 1 at least.
No worries lets do it.
approx. 70 verovians duely arrived, formed themselves into 5 teams and had a blast whacking balls out to the illuminated pontoon.
Good clean fun with plenty of banter from all. The participants were told they had five more challenges to complete before they could hit the 'Bar'.
Good luck and thanks from the Hole in One team.
The Chiefs rugby franchise booked the Hole in One for an hour whilst travelling to an away game against the Crusaders at Napier. Sounds strange but the Crusaders have no home ground because of earthquake damage to Lancaster Park / AMI Stadium.
We organised a sponsors versus players competition. The sponsors cleaned up! But Mils Muliaina and Richard Kahui did hit the pontoon and keep the sponsors honest.
We also had the boys hit the new Taylormade Drivers and Richard Kahui was the longest as 265 metres. Not quite as long as Piri Weepu who hit 273 at Christmas - on one leg!
The Hawkes Bay Rugby Union sponsors bus booked the site for an hour and a half on friday. The bus pulled up with 50 sponsors on board on route to Rotorua for the Bay of Plenty match. A must win points match for Hawkes Bay.
The Magpies won in the final seconds when Israel Dagg cross-kicked for Zac Guildford to run onto and score in the corner. Breathtaking stuff.
We would have loved to have been on the bus on the way home...
